Thank you so much to our knowledgeable and fun guide Yappy! We had an easy walking tour of Ginza street, with out of the way gems we could never have known about outside of the tour! He answered all of our questions about Tokyo and taught us more about respect for Japanese culture of food and service. We very much enjoyed all of our stops and drinks, special highlight was the Mixology bar at the end of the tour and the 360 rooftop view of a Tokyo! Thank you for a fantastic afternoon/evening. Highly recommended!

Our photographer was Ivana and she did such a great job. She was able to take all the good shots in less than one hour and all the photos came out really fantastic. We will recommend this and also use it in our next travel destination without hesitation!

It really is the best way to see beauty of the city. All the major bridges landmarks lit against nights sky paired with Japanese cuisine.

It was a worth it activity. We celebrated birthday of our kid on board. The staff offered a cake and a gift. Awesome. Full of fun.

It was an amazing experience, takes about an hour from Asakusa to Odaiba. So the 1,200yen fee was soooo worth it! Five star!!
